Grudge Match! Maximum Bob Socks It To Rattlesnake Killer Whitacre

November 2, 2014 – 02:03 am

Isn’t the Internet wonderful? Now industry types can trade barbs directly, without going through unreliable journalists.  Ed Whitacre still needed to write a book (or more like he had it written) to put down Bob Lutz, Dan Akerson et al.  Bob Lutz, however, has his own blog, hosted at Forbes, and boy does he take revenge on Whitacre:

“Ed’s most notable contribution to design was a comment I recall at a Cadillac styling session. Professing to know nothing about cars (true), he nevertheless opined that Cadillacs had the look of ‘old-fashioned Choo-choo trains’.”

As the ultimate put-down, Lutz says the CEO was ignored: “We digested that opaque bit of input and elected to stay with what we had.”

Lutz’s biggest beef is with Whitacre taking credit for GM’s alleged success:

“Ed Whitacre is a good leader and he made an incremental improvement to the organization. But to suggest that he is the architect of GM’s current success is a bit like crediting the rooster with making the sun come up.”

A list of South and North Bay landlords is in the works, but to begin, here are our choices for the worst actors in San Francisco and the East Bay. Background articles on many of these landlords are available...
